Don’t waste time shopping around, just go to GAPPSI. Last year, after meeting with several other contractors, we met with Guiseppi Abbrancati to discuss a design for our backyard. We had old retaining walls that were crumbling and desperately needed to be replaced. After seeing Guiseppi’s 3-D design at his showroom, we immediately decided to go with Gappsi. Guiseppi designed and built a two tiered, free form wall that incorporated a fire pit area and a set of stairs up to the second level of the backyard and built it using Nicolock Firma Wall Granite City. They also built a new patio by the house and a new entrance to our basement. We were so pleased with the work we asked them to design the landscaping. We met with Rolando Adamovicz who took the time to go through all of the plantings in his design and completed the project quickly. This year Rolando designed and built the front hardscape and landscape. The front of our property has an extremely steep hill and was very challenging. Rolando was able to construct the stairs from the driveway up to our front door while dealing with a difficult retaining wall design to make up for the grade change. The driveway was paved with Nicolock Colonial Coble Granite City pavers and paver lights were installed along the cobble stone border to define the edge of the driveway. The lights help us back down the driveway at night and enhance the curb appeal of the house. Wall lights were installed under the coping which shine down the retaining walls to soften the landscape and accent the front of the house at night. They also created a parking area that allows us to park two cars at the bottom of our driveway, when winter snow makes it impossible to get up the driveway and parking in the street is not allowed. As the work was being done in our front yard we got compliments from passersby who would stop to ask us who did the beautiful work. Everyone who comes over and sees the new design is completely blown away. Guiseppe and his team at Gappsi are a pleasure to deal with, know what they are doing and take pride in their work. We would highly recommend them. The Lawn Family
